An excellent first edition of the sequel to The First Hundred Thousand 'K (1)' (1915), which was one of the most popular books of its time. Both works feature wry and often amusing accounts of army life during the First World War ('First Hundred Thousand' refers to the author being one of first 100,000 of Kitchener's Army). Scarce in the correct first issue dust-jacket and in such condition - Blackwood were also the publishers of John Buchan's The Thirty-Nine Steps (also 1915), comparable examples of which dust-jacketed would sell for in excess of £15,000...

Description

First edition, first impression; 8vo; publisher's cloth, lettered in gilt, a sharp copy, with the original dust-jacket correctly priced at 6/net, slightly chipped with some loss to corners and foot of spine, one further chip from top-edge of lower panel, but overall a very good example of a rare surviving jacket.
